A few years ago, Shiva Rose began her blog The Local Rose to get closer to the earth and all its beauty. This desire led her on a journey that included solitary walks in forests, swimming in clean seas, and meditation through my Kundalini yoga practice. What came to me one day, after a moment of stillness, was a message,
"The message was to bring beauty and luminosity to women in a way that was nourishing and nurturing. So many products women consume, even some that claim to be all natural, contain harmful and toxic ingredients. Our skin is the largest organ, and therefore what we put on our bodies and face literally gets absorbed directly through contact. My skin care line is 100% toxic free, and without any chemicals. The rose face serum was created to bring radiance and nourishment to the face. It is made with loving intentions and in small batches to insure it’s optimal integrity.
My candle is in a toxic-free coconut based candle with rose, agar wood and vanilla. The body oils are all hand blended using unusual essential oils that benefit the skin and spirit. The glow balm and radiant rose water are recent additions that add luminous texture and are anti aging. Soon to come a few more products that use ancient wisdom and powerful ingredients. Thank you .. and may you walk in beauty, may you walk in the light . . ."
